Adam Neufeld of the National Legal Aid and Defender Association forwarded the following information about a program that may be of interest to readers of this blog:
The National Legal Aid and Defender Association (NLADA) is initiating the Appellate Support Network, a project that connects criminal procedure academics with public defenders working on important federal appellate matters. The network is composed of criminal procedure professors that are available to provide assistance to public defenders on significant issues in front of the Supreme Court and U.S. Courts of Appeals. The professors provide a limited number of hours of assistance on a case, and they are considered of counsel and have the option of co-signing the brief. More information on the Appellate Support Network is available at http://www.nlada.org/TestingGround/Appellate_Network. If you are interested in participating in the Appellate Support Network, please send your contact information along with your areas of expertise to Adam Neufeld at email@example.com.
